Colby Alcohol Reports.
Due to a variety of internal and external events the Student Affairs Committee of Colby College (Maine) studied alcohol use on campus and recommended solutions in two major areas, educational and social. Five educational strategies were recommended: (1) development of clear policies regarding alcohol and other drugs; (2) enforcement of regulations; (3) provision of alcohol and other drug education and prevention programs; (4) intervention and referral for treatment; (5) assessment of attitudes and behaviors toward alcohol and other drugs as well as program effectiveness. Several steps toward implementation were suggested, including the addition of a part-time alcohol counselor and a 1991 program assessment. In order to develop a new social life pattern the current practices and financial costs were reviewed. Possible changes include the sponsorship of innovative programs where alcohol is not the major focus. Because these programs tend to be more costly, several means for obtaining increased funds were examined. The funding needed to provide a comprehensive social life program for a full academic year was calculated. Two appendices detail events that were held during the first semester of the 1990-91 year, and the funding request for second semester of the same year. Also attached is a draft supplemental report focusing on health related issues designed to serve as a framework for a described plan of action. (JB)
